The Pima County One-Stop Career Center has funds for health-care employers to participate in a pilot training program aimed at improving employee performance and retention.

One-Stop is offering $24,000 per employer for up to five employers.

The training is for:

-New employees who went through Pima Community College's Pathways to Healthcare program, designed to help low-income individuals move into good-paying health-care occupations, or

-Existing, entry-level employees who meet the Pathways to Healthcare criteria and who the employer believes need to improve their performance to retain their jobs.

The training can include customer service, interpersonal skills, work ethic, attitude, time management, reliability, workplace relationships, safety protocols, clinical practice protocols, company policies and procedures, or other topics the employer needs.

One-Stop will work with the employer to determine employee eligibility, develop a training plan, and provide reimbursement at $30 an hour for one-on-one orientation training for 20 hours a week for four weeks for up to 10 employees per company.

The pilot program runs through Sept. 30, 2014. Additional funding and time may be added depending upon the success of the pilot project.

Contact Dorothee Harmon at 520-243-6760 or Dorothee.Harmon@pima.gov to learn more about the pilot program.
